2019 Queensland Tax Forum

Tips, traps and technical landmines

Tax has never been more complex, for taxpayers and advisers alike. Legislative change, regulatory change, regulator activity, and the increasing complexity of business transactions are all increasing the demands on tax professionals. In times of change, one of the few constants for tax professionals is the importance of fundamental technical knowledge and skills. This program is designed to respond to that need so that participants will gain the insights needed to add value (whether as advisers or in-house) and avoid technical traps and landmines.


The 2019 organising committee are delighted to have designed an unapologetically technical program that will equip attendees with the practical knowledge and skills to navigate the complex tax environment. Before diving into the detail however, it is important to understand the context in which we need to deliver our tax technical skills. To assist with this, we are delighted to welcome Bob Deutsch and Stephanie Caredes to respond to the political landscape in an environment where tax policy will likely be a key political battlefield. Continuing at the macro level, we are excited to have the return of our expert commentators Graeme Cooper and Kerrie Sadiq, who will join with Bob Deutsch to tackle the big tax reform questions of our time. We’re sure this discussion will be thought provoking and will provide the perfect lead-in to lively networking drinks on Thursday night.


The remainder of the program goes to the core of the Tax Institute’s professional development; technical sessions delivered by the experts, to provide attendees with the practical insights to respond to this complex world. From residency, to capital and revenue distinctions, with a plenary session on valuations, the technical program tackles core tax matters providing fresh insights and responding to the latest changes. We also cover the key reforms relevant to SME and corporate practitioners, with Paul Banister traversing the stepping stones of Division 7A reform in the SME stream, and John Bland providing a ‘post-implementation’ perspective on the practical impacts of the Significant Global Entity changes in the corporate stream.


The 2019 Queensland Tax Forum organising committee are confident that this program will provide all attendees with the information and ‘tips’ necessary to avoid the traps and technical landmines arising from today’s complex environment. It is my sincere pleasure to commend the 2019 Queensland Tax Forum to you, and I look forward to seeing you all there.

This session will cover:

  • Principles of tax effective salary planning
  • Key features of FBT
  • Common benefits that attract FBT including:
    • Car fringe benefits
    • ‘In-house’ fringe benefits
    • Living away from home allowance
    • Property and expense payment fringe benefits

  • From an employer’s perspective, the difference between employee ‘remuneration’ and ‘wages’ for a business’ payroll tax compliance.

Brisbane Women in Tax Lunch

Healthy, wealthy and wise – the role of D&I in driving a culture of high performance and wellbeing

The Tax Institute’s Women in Tax Network and its Queensland Women’s Tax Collective proudly introduce the next Women in Tax ‘Inspiring Leaders’ lunch, with our honoured guest speaker, Julie McKay.

With over 10 years of experience in diversity and inclusion (D&I), Julie is passionate about impacting important societal agendas in Australia and globally.

She is currently the Chief D&I Officer for PwC Australia, leading their internal D&I strategy and working with clients to disrupt cultural and systemic barriers across the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors.

While D&I is often associated with unconscious bias and targets, organisations are increasingly recognising the links between D&I, mental health and wellbeing and performance. Positioning these as a strategic priority is critical for organisations looking to create more engaged, connected and productive workforces.

Hear Julie’s insights about:

  • D&I as a key driver of culture, performance and mental health and wellbeing
  • The importance of inclusive leadership in affecting change
  • Where organisations should start to create impact and measure success
